There are things we’ve done throughout life that we are far from proud of and perhaps deeply ashamed of. Some of these things are hard to admit and some are even harder to love and accept. There are aspects of ourselves about which we feel shame, blame, self-hatred and punishment.
Sometimes we just won’t forgive ourselves and refuse to accept certain parts of who we are. Sometimes we don’t even know what we won’t forgive ourselves for, because we’ve buried these aspects or events deep inside.
Perhaps surprisingly, it’s not what we’ve done that causes suffering, but rather our judgments about ourselves and our pressured demands that we be different. Our refusal to accept who we are, as we are, is what actually causes our suffering. Our harsh demands and heavy pressure to fix and perfect ourselves doesn’t allow for change. It’s through self-love, forgiveness and acceptance that we change naturally.
The gift of acceptance is that it’s a transcendent energy that invites us to step outside of whatever set we’re caught in. The energy of acceptance lifts us beyond what we think we have to fix into a more expansive and radiant sense of self.
Acceptance is inclusive, rather than separating or exclusive. True acceptance of what is so, as it is, includes everything, even those people or things we don’t like. Ultimately, since we are all one and part of All, when we accept, we’re really accepting ourselves.
Acceptance allows for more opportunities and possibilities in how to respond in each moment. It invites us to see a bigger picture from which to respond effectively.
In the energy of acceptance we soften, open and expand. We open into exploring new depths of the joy in the unknown rather than recycling what causes suffering.
In the light of acceptance, we can transcend our internal and external fight to find peace and freedom.
